Abstract

Liver transplantation is performed in all the Nordic countries except Iceland. A Nordic action group with members from every centre draws up guidelines for organ exchange, treatment and research projects. The indications have been established, and results are steadily improving. The demand for organs is a manifest problem, particularly in acute cases where a new liver is required within a few days. After a successful transplantation, quality of life is comparable with that in the general population.
